Think Kidneys – Supporting Nutrition and Hydration Week 2017

Think Kidneys




Think Kidneys is the NHS campaign to improve the care of people with, or at risk of acute kidney injury (AKI) and once again we are pleased to be supporting Nutrition and Hydration Week.

Richard Fluck, Chair of Think Kidneys

“The work we have done with care homes this year is really important and has the potential to help reduce the number of people with, or at risk of AKI. Where the training has been introduced to staff in care homes they are already beginning to see the benefits with fewer falls, fewer UTIs, and ultimately, this will lead to fewer cases of AKI among their residents. Care homes have a massive role to play in reducing AKI and we were thrilled to see their enthusiasm to help develop the resources, as this became a priority for us”

We recognise that care homes are very involved every year in Nutrition and Hydration Week and we will be pleased to see everyone’s efforts to raise awareness. In support we will tweet and spread the word via social media. For information about Think Kidneys resources for Care Homes visit
